Game stop is the only place your guaranteed to get your preorder as they take preorders from places like best buy to fill there orders.

Might have to put my collectors on ebay if they are going for $175.

The throttle control is so much better that I can drive the ZR1 without traction control. God damn it's fast. It also sounds like the devil.

Are you using a wheel Tech? ^ I just noticed you seem to be braking smoother and turning in smoother than I am. I find it hard to find the brake threshold between maximum braking and lock up, making for a messy turn when I lock up the wheels. I really need to get a wheel setup, but I have not the room or money to devote to one right now.
Yes on the wheel.

I figured out two lines that will shave off at least half a second from 40.3 which should drop me near 39.8. I'm pretty sure I know another line that I'm not taking right thats killing me by half a second. So I can see another second in there.
went 1:40.3xx clean.

That would for sure help me. I just don't have the control I would like. I can see where I am loosing speed in turns by losing traction and pushing. If I could just modulate a little better and keep it right at the point of breaking traction, I could power through the turns so much better.

We should start compiling a list of gamertags and make a MT Car Club on Forza.

I just quit at level 21, lol. I already have a Spec Miata, now do the same so we can battle. So far the ZR1 with aero, rubber, exhaust, and wide wheels is the most fun car on the game.

It is significantly easier to use on this game. The brake pedal works right, you can controll tire-spin, and I don't really have any complaints. I'd like to do the bearing mod to mine.

I just realized that my pick-up notice said tomorrow. I guess it goes to show that if you act like you know what you're doing, people will do what you say.

My garage name is "pwr garage" if anyone wants to share my awesome cars.
